Whether you are looking for new blinds or shutters for any room in your home, Village Blinds & Shutters are here to help make the process convenient for you.

Do you have sash windows in your home? If so, you know how charming and elegant they are. They add character and style to any room, and they let in plenty of natural light.

But you also know how tricky it can be to find the right window treatments for them. You want something that complements your sash windows, not covers them up. You want something that provides shade and privacy, without compromising the functionality of the sashes. And you want something that fits perfectly within the window frame, without leaving any gaps or holes.

That’s why we at Village Blinds and Shutters are here to help. We have the perfect solution for your sash windows: roller blinds.

In this blog post, we will show you how we transformed a home in Ahoghill with our custom-made roller sash window blinds. We will share with you the challenges we faced, the solutions we offered, and the results we achieved. And we will also give you some tips on how to choose, measure, and install roller blinds for your sash windows.

How to Choose the Perfect Sash Window Blinds for Angled Reveals

Our customers in Ahoghill had a clear vision of what they wanted for their home: a timeless look with roller blinds in a soft white tone throughout. They loved how roller blinds matched their sash windows, creating a simple and elegant look.

However, they also faced some challenges when it came to finding the right blinds for their sash windows. One of them was how to deal with the angled reveals.

The window reveals are the parts of the wall that surround the window frame. In some homes, like our customers, the reveals are set at 45 degrees, which means that they slope inward from the wall to the window. This can create gaps between the blinds and the reveals, allowing light to enter and reducing privacy.

Another challenge was how to ensure that the sash window blinds fit well within the window frame, without interfering with the operation of the sashes. The sashes are the movable parts of the window that slide up and down. They need enough space to move freely, without being obstructed by the blinds.

Hand Crafted Sash Window Blinds

After discussing the customer’s needs and preferences, we suggested roller blinds as the ideal solution for their sash windows. Roller blinds are simple and versatile, and they can be custom-made to fit any window size.

We measured the windows carefully and made the roller blinds fit perfectly within the window frame. We chose a soft white fabric that suited the customer’s decor and created a bright and airy feel. We also used break-away connectors as child safety devices on the control chains.

By using break-away connectors, we avoided having to drill into the feature reveals to secure the control chains. This way, we preserved the original character of the windows and walls, while ensuring safety and convenience for the customer.

Sash Window Blinds – A Stunning Transformation with Roller Blinds

The customer was overjoyed with the final result. They said that the roller blinds had transformed their home and made it look more elegant and cosy. They also said that the blinds were very functional and practical and that they provided excellent light control and privacy.

They especially loved how the blinds fitted snugly within the window frame, without interfering with the sashes or creating gaps in the reveals.

Here are some photos of the project that show how beautiful the roller blinds looked on their sash windows:

But wait, there’s more! We also installed a cream roller blind in their bathroom, which was a stunning space with a luxurious freestanding tub, a marble tiled floor, and exquisite blush pink wainscoting.

The cream roller blind had to be meticulously measured, made, and installed to ensure a perfect fit to give privacy and allow free operation against the paneling which extended into the reveal. The result was a stylish and tranquil oasis, finished off with a soft cream roller blind.

Village Blinds and Shutters Home Appointments FAQ

Our design consultant will arrive at the agreed time slot and ask you questions about your requirements and style preferences to help understand your project. They will measure your windows and discuss fabric/material options and provide you with a quotation based on your choices.

Depending on your requirements, a home appointment can take from 30 minutes for 1-10 blinds, to 60 minutes for 10+ blinds or window shutters. Our design consultant will work at your pace and we’re happy to stay longer to talk through your options and provide advice if you’d like.

We would ask ahead of the home appointment that you have arranged clear access to the window areas being measured and that any obstructing furniture or breakables near the windows are removed.

Once the windows are in, plastering has been completed and any tiling or skirting or architrave that might be close to the blinds has been installed. This will allow our design consultant to take accurate measurements.

Usually, our design consultant will be able to provide you with your quotation during your appointment.  Sometimes for some very bespoke projects pricing can take a little longer. If you haven’t heard back within 24 hours, give them a call or email and they will keep you updated.

Our production team work tirelessly to craft every single blind and shutter for our customers individually.
